Album caption and index card: Transitman directing boat on a given azimuth. Kajakai Reservoir, Afghanistan. ca. 1968. Published as figure 11 in the U.S. Geological Survey Water-supply paper 1608-M. 1970.

We developed and tested a new method for in situ characterization and distribution of inorganic particles in biopsied lung tissue from three diverse human subject groups using field emission scanning electron microscopy with an energy dispersive analyzer. Backscattered electron and secondary electron images of particulate matter in lung tissue were acquired. Inorganic particulate matter in the field of view of the image was analyzed using energy dispersive spectroscopy and subsequently identified and cataloged.

This dataset was created as part of the USGS Afghanistan Project investigating artisanal and small-scale mining activity. Clay mining for brick making purposes represents a small but important segment of the mineral extraction industry in Kabul, Afghanistan. Over the past several decades Kabul has grown from a relatively small city, with a 1970 population of less than 500,000 people, to a sprawling urban center with approximately 4.2 million people in 2020 (CIA 2020). Population growth has expanded the need for housing, commercial, and industrial buildings, and associated infrastructure. This has greatly increased demand for bricks, the primary construction material of the region. In this study, very high-resolution...

Album caption and index card: A.O. Westfall, USGS hydrologist, instructing Afghan hydrometrists in stream-gaging methods by cableway at model gaging station on Kabul River near head of Tang-e Gharu. View upstream. Afghanistan. n.d. Published as figure 38 in U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 911. 1976.

This data release catalogs currently active ASM operations in Afghanistan in various parts of the country. The dataset was developed through visual interpretation of mining features from the most recently available very high-resolution satellite imagery. The polygon-based shapefiles contains 1 square kilometer gridcells, each of which indicates the presence (and number) of mine sites recorded within its extent.

This data set is the digital geologic layer for the map of South Asia. The data set includes arcs, polgons, polygon labels, and attributes for geology, faults, inferred faults, and rivers. The data set is compiled from numerous UNESCO geologic maps to assist in the assessment of oil and gas for the World Energy Project.

Album caption and index card: A.O. Westfall, USGS hydrologist, at a new stream-gaging and weather observation station on Kabul River near head of Tang-e Gharu (Tangi Garu Gorge). View downstream. This is one of 63 new stream-gaging and weather stations constructed in Afghanistan as part of the Surface Water Research Project, 1964-69. Afghanistan. n.d. Published as figure 37 in U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 911. 1976.

Album caption and index card: Boat with fathometer crew beginning sounder run. Kajakai Reservoir, Afghanistan. ca. 1968. Published as figure 11 in U.S. Geological Survey Water-supply paper 1608-M. 1970.

Gridded seismic hazard curve data, gridded ground motion data, and mapped gridded ground motion values are available for the 2007 Afghanistan Seismic Hazard Model. Probabilistic seismic hazard data and maps of Afghanistan for peak ground acceleration (PGA) and 0.2 and 1.0 second spectral acceleration at probability levels of 2 percent in 50 years (annual probability of 0.000404), 5 percent in 50 years (annual probability of 0.001026), and 10 percent in 50 years (annual probability of 0.0021), assuming firm rock soil conditions at 760 m/s, are available. Development of the 2007 Afghanistan Seismic Hazard Model is documented in the USGS Open-File Report 2007-1137 (https://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2007/1137/index.html). This...

We developed and tested a new method for in situ characterization and distribution of inorganic particles in biopsied lung tissue from three diverse human subject groups using field emission scanning electron microscopy with an energy dispersive analyzer. A backscattered electron image of each frame was acquired to locate inorganic particulate matter. The electron beam was deflected to points on the particles in the field of view to acquire an energy dispersive spectrum. The acquired spectra were used to identify the particle type.
